Today is June 11, 2012.  Today has been a day of reflection for me, in between running errands, grocery shopping, etc. etc. ect.  I've posted a picture of the quilt I quilted for myself last week.  I showed a few pictures of it while it was still on the longarm.  Then I realized this will be my last quilt....... the last quilt I will quilt for myself  while I am still in my 50's, well actually 59.  Tomorrow is my 60th birthday.  Good grief when did 60 years go by.  For some reason I was having a problem turning 60 and then I realized how selfish of an attitude was that for me to think this way.  When my husband( Gary), my  brother (John) and my favorite siter-in-law (Jane) each turned 60 I was elated just knowing they were still here with me on this earth.  So "60" look out here I come.

And how about my Coca-Cola chairs?  (I actually have two)  I just spray painted them over the weekend.  They were looking awfully faded so I got a can of Krylon spray paint and went to work.  I love the Krylon brand of spray paint.  No drips, just a nice even coat of paint on my Coca-Cola chairs.

I did get two quilts quilted today, not bad for a lady turning 60.  Gary asked me what I wanted to do to celebrate my birthday tomorrow.  I told him you'll probably think I 'm silly (certainly not the first time in almost 40 years of marriage), but I would just love to spend some time quilting one of my own quilts.  He had thoughts of going to a garden center and picking out some flowers.  We'll just have to see how we end up celebrating my "60th" birthday.  However we celebrate atleast we will be together.

Blessings to all.


  1. Congrats, hope you have a great day whatever you do, have just reached 58 years young.

  2. What a sweet post! Yes, it's like Mother's day...what do you want to do? nothing but sewing...a wonderful partner recognizes the love!
    Love that quilt. It seems to be your own design which is perfect inspiration. Simple quilts are what I love most because the colours say it all. thanks so much for popping by my blog.

  3. The quilt is from a pattern by Camille Roskelley from Thimbleblossoms. Sorry I don't remember the pattern name. I do love the pattern. I have my Double Trouble quilt pattern by Kate Spain that I just put together. That is the quilt I would move to quilt on today, but I may wait and do a customer quilt first. We'll see. Blessings.
